Share each other’s burdens, and in this way obey the law of Christ. (Gal. 6:2)
There is a vital responsibility that is ignited in a believer of Christ. This mission is born and nourished through community and the coming together of believers. This task spurs compassion towards others through trial, misfortune or heartache without hesitation.
This was the case for my family when we were the recipients of such love and kindness through the loss of our daughter Angel. There is a certain humility we experienced when others sustained us through this tragedy. It is through Christ and that experience that we have grown and strive to embody the gracious support that we received.
This video illustrates our experience with the importance of community and becoming involved in small groups through your home church.
Without our relationship with Christ and the compassion of His community, we would be unable to be endure the tragedy of our loss. As the great commandment instructs; Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your strength and with all your mind’; and, ‘Love your neighbor as yourself’ (Luke 10:27).
May God Bless You and Give You Grace.
